Urban Girl Alamanac: Home Sweet Home

Although it is deceptively sunny outside now, we're in the middle of a big winter storm here in the city. It hailed last night and is supposed to stay cold and wet all weekend. Our reader Jennifer from Canada probably should bring her puffy jacket after all! Along with the importance of a good umbrella, here's what I've learned this week:
  • Blood orange sorbet is delicious.
  • I really, really, really want a DVF Justin dress.
  • I always keep four things in the kitchen for a last minute dinner: corn tortillas, cheese, organic lettuce and these refried beans. Oh, and limes and salsa fresca too. I guess that is my SoCal side!
  • I think my health insurance company deliberately brainstorms ways to torture me.
  • Good interior designer does not equal good dresser.
  • Time to spruce up your make-up for spring? E.L.F. has free shipping today.
  • Mmmm....tabasco cheez-its and cadbury mini eggs.
  • I'm so excited to stay home this weekend. Lots of museums and shopping!
  • I have a massive girl crush on Tina Fey. All the girl professionals out there should watch last night's episode. I daydreamed all day about making my foes do the worm and finding the perfect context to say "Yeah, suck it, I do read the paper."
I'm off early for another MRI. No needles this time, so it will just be boring not scary. Have a great weekend! Don't forget to glam it up on Sunday for the Oscars.

Update: You haven't lived until you've experienced an earthquake while inside an MRI machine! Talk about stressful conditions.

You know... I ordered about $50 in e.l.f. products and I hate to say it but I wasn't thrilled with a lot of it... makes me sad I had high hopes.

The SoCal dinner sounds delish! Also if you want a great Chalupa recipe see hogiewogie.blogspot. She is my sister-in-law, and a great friend and she is the best cook I know.

Also, good luck in the MRI thing. I'm a bit nervous in confined spaces. I feel for you.

Other than that, have a really fun weekend. If you are going to see all that lovely jewelry, don't forget to tell all!!!

I felt that earthquake. How scary to be getting an MRI while it happened!!!!

The episode of 30 Rock you are talking about had to be one of my favorites. It's like every word had something extra funny laced in! The crab and worm fighting was a great moment.
